  • Electromagnetic Reactor

    Electromagnetic ReactorAn electromagnetic reactor is an inductor designed to solve the problem of short circuits within an electric circuit. It has constant inductive reactance and is connected in series with the load. Under standard conditions, we can observe a 3-4% voltage drop on the reactor, which is absolutely normal. In the event of a short circuit the largest part of the voltage falls onto the reactor. The maximum value of surge current is calculated according to the following formula:Where im- maximum surge current;Ih - rated mains current;Xp - reactance of the reactor.Thus, the higher the reactance, the lower is the maximum surge current. The reactance is directly proportionate to the inductive reactance of the inductor. Under high current values, the cores in the coils with stee...

    Nuclear Reactor - Understanding how it works | Physics Elearnin video Nuclear reactors are the modern day devices extensively used for power generation as the traditional fossil fuels, like coal, are at the breach of extinction. A nuclear reactor is the source of intense heat which is in turn used for generation of power in nuclear power station. Its mechanism is similar to that of a furnace in a steam generator; the steam is used to drive the turbines of the electric generator system.

    BEST VIEWED IN HD 720P. This visualization was created using simulations run on the supercomputers at the National Center of Computational Sciences and shows the expected operation of the ITER fusion reactor. This reactor is currently being built by a global coalition in Cadarache, France and is expected to begin the first experiments in 2020. To produce fusion reactions, the fuel must be heated to a temperature of over one hundred and fifty million degrees -- more than ten times the temperature of the sun's core. An initial plasma is formed and heated by driving an electric current through the fuel gas in the tokamak chamber. When the plasma reaches a sufficient density and temperature, the injectors are turned on. These very energetic beam ions are trapped by the magnetic field and c...

  • Why get a Line Reactor?

    Protect Your Drives and Avoid Downtime. A line reactor is an inductor that absorbs high voltage microsecond transients that can damage the Variable Frequency Drives running your facility. Line reactors achieve this by slowing the rise time of the voltage spike to keep your VFDs safe. Line reactors are a relatively inexpensive way to protect several drives in an installation.

The reactance is directly proportionate to the inductive reactance of the inductor. Under high current values, the cores in the coils with steel cores get saturated, which significantly decreases the reactance, and, as a result, the reactor looses its current-limiting properties. That's why reactors are made without the steel cores, despite the fact that, in this case, reactors do need to be bigger and heavier to maintain the same value of inductance.Structurally, there exist two types of reactors: concrete reactors designed for the voltage of up to 35 kV, and oil-immersed reactors for the voltage over 35 kV.Today the problem of short circuits and large consumption pulses can be solved with the help of electronic potentiometers, which replace and supplement electromagnetic reactors and help to consume energy and space in a more efficient manner.

Nuclear Reactor - Understanding how it works | Physics Elearnin video Nuclear reactors are the modern day devices extensively used for power generation as the traditional fossil fuels, like coal, are at the breach of extinction. A nuclear reactor is the source of intense heat which is in turn used for generation of power in nuclear power station. Its mechanism is similar to that of a furnace in a steam generator; the steam is used to drive the turbines of the electric generator system. A nuclear reactor consists of three crucial components: Fuel elements, moderator and control rods. Fuel elements come usually in the shape of thin rods of about 1cm in diameter and contain fissionable nuclei, like Uranium (235 92U or 238 92U). These rods vary in number according to the size of the reactor, in large power reactor thousands of fuel elements are placed close to each other. This region where these fuel elements are placed is called the reactor core. These fuel elements are normally immersed in water which acts as a moderator. The objective of a moderator is to slow down the energy neutrons in a nuclear reactor which are produced during the nuclear fission process by the fuel elements. Thermal neutrons, which are neutrons with energy of about 0.04 electron volts, are capable of producing fission reaction with 235 92U. During the fission reaction process, new neutrons are given out which have energies of about 1 MeV. These neutrons of typically escape from participating in another fission process as they are accompanied by enormous energy release. In f -ct, the probability of these neutrons produce another fission reaction is 500 times less than as compared to that of a thermal neutron. This is where moderator is extremely useful. Moderator has the capability to slow down, or in other words moderate, the speed of these high-energy neutrons, so that they can in turn be used for a chain reaction to trigger multiple fission reactions of other 235 92U nucleus. Commonly, ordinary or heavy water is used as moderator in nuclear reactors because of the deuterons present in them which are capable of slowing the neutron speed. Water molecules in the moderator are useful in slowing down the high-energy neutrons which leave the fuel-element after nuclear fission. These high-energy neutrons collide with water molecules thereby losing out on some energy with every collision and therefore slow down substantially. A new fission reaction can now be triggered using this slow neutron by striking it with the fuel element. The third and of the most prominent part of a nuclear reactor are the control rods. In order to get a steady output of energy from the nuclear reactor, every single nuclear fission reaction should trigger another fission reaction and ensure the availability of a spare neutron released to trigger the chain reaction. By controlling the number of spare neutrons available at any given time, the rate of the nuclear fission chain reaction can be controlled. This control on the fission reaction can be maintained using the control rods. The main function of the control rods is to absorb any excess or spare neutron in the moderator in order to prevent any further fission reaction. Usually such control rods are made of Boron or Cadmium. To increase the rate of fission reactions, these rods can be removed from the moderator. A steady output of energy can be thus maintained by inserting or removing the control rods in the nuclear reactor. Now that we know the components of a nuclear reactor, let us understand the working of a nuclear reactor. It is usually enclosed in a shield made of thick concrete walls. It consists of a reactor core, pump and heat exchanger. The reactor core and pump are in placed in contact with the water, which is usually the heat exchanger used in reactors. Due to the enormous amount of heat released dusing nuclear fission reaction, this surrounding water gets heated up and changes to steam, which is in turn used to turn the turbines. Thus huge heat energy gets converted into electrical energy. Water is continuously flown in and out of the nuclear reactor using the pump. Thus a nuclear reactor successfully generates nuclear energy from fission reaction.

But nonetheless it is actual atomic fusion and you get some pretty high energy neutrons (like 2Mev). You can either detect these directly with a tube, dosimeter, crazy stuff or silver activation. The silver transmutes into silver 109 or 111 which then decays into cadmium and releases alpha particles with a half life of ~22 seconds. The reaction also makes tritium, helium 3, 4 and x-rays. They are cool but not all that useful unless you have a project that you need tons of neutrons for... Prices and parts: Chamber (could be simple bell jar) $50-$400 High voltage Supply, 35kv Negative polarity ~10 mA $100 Vacuum pumps $150 Deuterium, hard to get but not that hard $100-$300 Solvents, valves, wires, wood, needle valve(.02), lead, whatever $200 I got it all from ebay, mcmaster and kurt j lesker. I did bake the chamber a bit, it gets down to 20 mTorr now with just the mechanical pump because I just leave it under vacuum and everything has outgassed over a few weeks. This thing spews out tons of bad stuff, and the high voltage might be able to kill you too. I'd be more worried about high energy neutrons though. Not to mention all the x-rays or uv rays plasma puts out. It'll kill ya if your stupid with it Consider supporting me and my projects on patreon! https://www.patreon.com/Bennbuilds

Another point, yes it WAS corrosive, but these tests of this reactor were 50 years ago, our technology has definitely improved since then so a leap to create this reactor shouldn't be too hard. And nuclear fear is extremely common in the average person, rather irrational though it may be. More people have died from fossil fuels and even hydroelectric power than nuclear power. No, it would not collapse the economy (yes, people actually ask this question)... just like the use of uranium reactors didn't... neither did coal... This is because you wouldn't have an instant transition from coal... oil... everything else to thorium. We could not do that. Simply due to the engineering. Give it 50 years we might be using thorium instead of coal/oil (too late in terms of global warming, but that's another debate completely), but we certainly won't destroy the earth's economy. Duh. And yes he said we'd never run out. Not strictly true... bloody sceptics ... LFTRs can harness 3.5 million Kwh per Kg of thorium! 70 times greater than uranium, 10,000 greater than oil... and there is over 2.6 million tonnes of it on earth...
